After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?

After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off?  Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?

You can't!: The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way you were before. That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can. ...Read more

Daily supplement says don't take with alcoholic beverages. Can I drink later though?

I never understand: Why people who ask if it's ok to drink never say HOW MUCH they are drinking HOW OFTEN. I guess I actually do understand — it is because they are drinking too much, too often. If you are talking about 1-2 social drinks on an occasion after taking your supplement (what kind, for what purpose?) it probably doesn't matter, but if you are getting drunk, then DON'T. ...Read more

I have only had 4 alcoholic beverages in my life. With every sip I get a burning tingle in my rectal area. Is that normal? Is it because I don't drink

I have only had 4 alcoholic beverages in my life. With every sip I get a burning tingle in my rectal area. Is that normal? Is it because I don't drink

not common: The nerves of the digestive system are complex and not well understood. It is possible that there is some connection between alcohol contact in the mouth and rectal sensation. It could also be that your own emotional response to drinking is driving neurological response at the rectum. Perhaps the easy thing to do is stop drinking. Maybe one day we will understand this better. ...Read more

Can a person safely drink 1-2 alcoholic beverages on a special occasion while on 5mg of lexapro (escitalopram)? Getting conflicting info, are there liver issues?

I wouldn't: If I were the person concerned, I wouldn't drink while taking Lexapro (escitalopram) or any other psychotropic medication. If your liver is impaired, metabolism of both Lexapro (escitalopram) and alcohol will be impaired as well. Some may be able to tolerate the increased sedation, etc, but I'm not willing to okay something I wouldn't want to do myself. ...Read more

I'm wondering if I drink 10 to 15 alcoholic beverages a day am i healthy?

Umm...likely not.: Just in case you're in denial, 10-15 alcoholic beverages is a lot of alcohol. A lot! And because it probably did not happen overnight, you've likely been drinking too much for many years. Which means that it is highly unlikely that you are, indeed, healthy. My professional advice is to see a physician as soon as possible to get evaluated and checked out. It's the way to know for sure. Good luck. ...Read more

For two days I've had two numb spots in my right leg, I'm not sure what's wrong, I was drinking a large amount of alcoholic beverages, could that be w?

Numbness: If the numbness persists, you should see a doctor. Not sure if it's related to heavy alcohol consumption. What sometimes can happen is that if you "pass out" and lie on one part of your body for extended periods without moving, that can cause a form of trauma to the nerve which could be causing the numbness. If you drink like that frequently, check your B12 level. Low B12 can cause nerve problems. ...Read more

The vagus nerve interfaces with the autonomic, parasympathetic control of heart rate, and may impact this response. If this is only/main symptom, not dysfunction. ...Read more
